In some ways, Apple's performance was even more impressive because supplies of the new watch were limited, meaning demand was stronger than the number of shipments indicates.

The Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) Watch sold 3.9M units in calendar Q3 with 800K of the total coming from the Series 3 LTE model, according to Canalys data.

Only 800,000 units of the Apple Watch were shipped till date.

Trump lands in Philippines, final stop in Asia
When the reporters asked Trump whether he would raise human rights at the meeting, Duterte replied with: "Whoa, whoa". Human Rights Watch said that even children are being targeted and described the issue as a "new level of depravity".

Apple's launch of a smartwatch with cellular capabilities helped the company regain the lead for wrist-based wearables in the third quarter, shipping 3.9 million smartwatches compared to Xiaomi's 3.6 million and Fitbit's 3.5 million.

Overall, Canalys believes that Apple was the #1 wearable manufacturer for the quarter including both smartwatches and less-feature-rich smart fitness bands. It also gave Apple 23 percent of the market, putting it fractionally ahead of the 21 percent for Xiaomi, the Chinese firm that was briefly top of the industry for the first time in the previous quarter.

In September, Apple unveiled a watch with built-in cellular, which means users can use the device to make calls, stream music and perform other tasks without having to be tethered to the iPhone.

Jason Low added that "In China, customers with high expectations are being driven away by the service disruption fiasco in the country. Besides bringing in more stock, operators should work on improving their remote service provisioning systems to cater for the expected higher demand in Q4", says Low.

Samsung, Apple and Huawei, the top three smartphone vendors by volume in Q3 2017, have positioned smartwatches to complement their premium smartphones. Looking out to the current fourth quarter, the research firm said vendors are expecting a strong three month period with new smartwatches including improved health tracking features and a longer battery life driving demand.

"Apple and Samsung are increasing user stickiness and brand loyalty by adopting an ecosystem strategy, which includes wearables and audio accessories".
